Sunday Picnic and Cookies

We went back to the regional park we visited yesterday for our evening bike ride.  We just had to.  It was the perfect setting for a picnic so we headed out after Mass and a few chores.  I pushed Daddy to get the fishing poles ready for use.  He resisted but after a little persuasion, he was able to get four poles ready for the kids.


I put together a picnic lunch of chicken and bacon pasta salad, grapes, carrots, PB & J sandwiches, crackers, chocolate chip cookies, and iced tea.  The kids enjoyed getting the poles out and fishing from the dock using corn for bait.  It was a quick 10 minute ride to the park, and then a gorgeous 2 hours in an idyllic setting.

Oh, and I almost forgot, we did make cookies for a couple occasions last week.  The girls brought back a cute little Schoenstatt Shrine cookie cutter from summer camp.  Monica baked these cookies and decorated them as soon as she was able after camp week.

Monica added a few little green details for the ivy that usually grows on the façades of the shrines worldwide.
